Prison is a new prospect for teenagers caught with spray Paint in Manley, Australia. Under the Sydney suburbâ€™s new anti-graffiti laws, minors are banned from possessing spray cans â€œunless they could prove they were to be used for education, employment or legal art.â€ If teens fail to refute their presumed guiltiness, they can be fined $1100 or sent to jail for six months.
According to the Manly Daily, brighter minds have spoken out against the drastic new laws, pointing out how â€œill conceived and uselessâ€ they are when actual graffiti writers are rarely ever caught in the first place. A better strategy to combat the uptick in illegal graffiti: convince vandals to take up Twittering. |Manly Daily|
